Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Non-Dead Hendrix + The Monkees explained

This turned up on Snopes today, and I thought it might interest some of you. I'd never heard the whole story before, and it certainly raises my opinion of The Monkees quite a bit. Unfortunately you will have to go there; you can't cut and paste from Snopes!

Ah, Daydream Believer ... another of my fave songs from back in the day! (Not the usual "back in the day." Further backer.) The Hendrix link proves the "pre-fab four" really were officially cool.

Monkees trivia time: I think someone from CSNY auditioned to be in the Monkees. Couldn't be Neil Young. Stephen Stills?

And remember White-Out? It was invented by Michael Nesmith's mother. Later, Michael Nesmith was the producer of Repo Man. Great movie.

I blame society. Let's get sushi and ... not pay!

Nesmith also produced a film called Time Rider, which was one of my favorites as a kid

He also had a cameo in the film in the begining. "must be swan" was his quote line. Still have the origional movie poster.

Wow, for once I was ahead of the curve! I knew this from being a huge Monkees fan in the day. Every Christmas I still put on the album "Head" from their movie.

Are there any other strange Xmas traditions out there?

I knew they had toured together, but did not know how it had come about - I guess I assumed it was some bonehead concert promoter, and not that the guys in the Monkees were blown away by Jimi and just wanted to watch him play. That's pretty awesome.

If you like early Hendrix and can get into LL some kind person has uploaded a whole slew of material to commemorate the 40th anniversary of his death (18/9 I think). Jams and rare studio stuff with friends like J.Winter, some of Traffic and others.
